ReCONNECT to Move Forward: Mental Health & Well-Being
*NEW ResourceNational Minority Mental Health Awareness Month
Everyone’s mental well-being has been affected in some way by the pandemic. In addition to clinical mental health, many are experiencing loneliness, grief, and anger–whether from job loss, disconnection from family and social networks, or from societal inequities and COVID’s disproportionate impact on communities of color. The Institute for Emerging Issues has put together a shortlist of resources that are available to address near-term needs and assist in building support systems to thrive in a post-pandemic world.
